Niagara Falls, Ontario -- May 29, 2017 -- Josh Kazdan, owner/operator of Better Image Collision in Niagara Falls, has recently been recognized with the annual 40 Under Forty achievement. For the last 14 years, Niagara’s Business Link Media Group has been giving this award to forty individuals under the age of 40 that demonstrate great entrepreneurship in the Niagara area. With a solid reputation for customer satisfaction and continual improvements to his business, it comes as no surprise that Kazdan would be chosen for this award.
Since opening in 2001, Better Image Collision has largely relied on word of mouth to bring in business. Kazdan has always operated his business with the belief that “the only thing that mattered was to treat people right, be honest, do good work, and the rest will follow.” Not only has this philosophy led to a successful shop, but also recognition within the area and local business community.
Kazdan himself was not expecting the award when the nomination came to his attention. “I didn’t know what I was up for,” Kazdan said in a recent interview with Collision Repair magazine. Soon after, he received the call that he had been chosen as one of the top 40.
As honoured as he is, Kazdan still looks at his business with the same beliefs as when he first opened the doors 16 years ago. Regarding his shop and its values, Kazdan said he “prides himself on customer service since day one.” These values and quality of work have led to the expansion of his shop; set to open a second location in the Niagara region later this year.
